FPD reminder on city ordinance on golf carts

May 11

Fishers has had an ordinance on the books for some time governing the use of golf carts on streets.  With warm weather here and golf carts in regular use, the Fishers Police Department reminds local residents that golf carts are only allowed within streets of local neighborhoods that have finished a process setup by the city allowing golf carts on those streets.

So far only the following neighborhoods have gone through the city ordinance process to allow golf carts on their streets:  Britton Falls, Thorpe Creek, Intracoastal At Geist and Graystone.

Police issued the following release Wednesday:

===========

The Fishers Police Department would like to remind residents of the city’s local ordinance concerning the use and operation of golf carts. Fishers’ City Ordinance No. 090214D (codified at §94.02 of the Code of Ordinances) authorizes the use of golf carts on some neighborhood streets if the following conditions have been met:

1. Fishers has determined that golf carts may be safely operated on the streets within

the specific neighborhood;

2. A threshold amount (75 percent or higher) of property owners in the neighborhood have voted in favor of allowing golf carts within the neighborhood and the results of the election have been certified; and

3. The proper signage in the designated locations has been placed.

Golf carts shall not be operated on the public streets of Fishers except in full compliance with the provisions of this section. Currently, Britton Falls, Thorpe Creek, Intracoastal At Geist and Graystone are the only neighborhoods, in Fishers, to be in full compliance with the provisions of this section.

h) Valid License Required. Only persons possessing a valid driver’s license issued by the State of Indiana, another state of the United States, or an international agency shall be permitted to operate a golf cart on Fishers streets.

 

 

DISCLAIMER, LIABILITY, AND INSURANCE

a) Disclaimer. Golf carts are not designed for or manufactured to be used on public streets, and Fishers neither advocates nor endorses the golf cart as a safe means of travel on public streets.
